Love more ‘what’???
ART (you knew I’d say that first, right?!), YOURSELF, LIFE, YOUR KIDS, YOUR DOG
Just pick one thing (at least)!
Yes, I’m feeling lovey-dovey today and this art journal spread was inspired by a piece of paper I tore of a sales leaflet with two powerful words: LOVE MORE. It doesn’t matter what you it is you love as long as you put out more love into the Universe 🙂

Let’s get started!

  1. I had some leftover yellow page on my background so I used that as a base… And pulled a fun stamp of textures!
  2. I stamped all over my page with purple ink, then turquoise, then blue. Just to add to start building some texture, you know?
  3. Then came out the paints (in sky blue, magenta and coral) and the fingers for some finger painting 🙂
  4. When that was nice and dry, I pulled out another stamp from the same set and some white inks, this time for some vertical texture.
  5. Next a ‘splotchy’ stamp (again from the same set) added a nice circular contrast to the linear marks I had just done but… That didn’t stop me from adding more linear marks in purple right on top 😉
  6. I then added some Tim Holtz tissue paper with gel medium for more interest and some deli paper pieces I had painted earlier.
  7. A couple of Carabelle Studio stamps helped me build on my layers… And when I felt it was enough, I glued my two important words: LOVE MORE.
  8. I felt a stamped dragonfly and a few flowers were enough to make my page feel complete and I didn’t want it to look overdone so… I stopped!

Hope you are feeling inspired now!
